While I could use a GPS device to find my polling place or that great restaurant I always hear about, the new campaign for Alfer GPS Sale and Installation uses a different unorthodox approach to get you to buy their product: transsexuals and thieves as a scarevertising technique.

The cheeky campaign was photographed by Marcel Boldú for DRAFTFCB Caracas, Venezuela with creative directors Macoco Moreira, Carlos Rusconi, art director Daniel Méndez and copywriter Macoco Moreira.
